The Digital Humanities operates as a dynamic ecology that includes humanities computing, (new) media studies, technology studies, and digital pedagogies.  Like any ecology, the field is dynamic and unpredictable, resulting in both challenges and opportunities. Knight’s talk will take us on a tour of the various landscapes of the ecology, showcasing a range of projects and their relation to traditional Humanities research. Her talk will reveal the benefits of cultivating the field as ecology, including its impact on scholarly publishing and the public role of the Humanities.

Valley Memories: the Catherine Mulholland Collection

Over the years, Catherine Mulholland, who loved  libraries and the Oviatt in particular, donated her personal archives and those of her family to the Library, understanding the importance of preserving the past for future generations.  This remarkable collection, dating back to the 1860s, is a journey through Valley history as seen in the photographs, scrapbooks, memorabilia, clothing and ranch records of this pioneer family.  We invite you to come share the story of the Ijams, Haas, Perret, Ferguson and Mulholland families.
